Storage Asset Management Inc. (SAM) recently launched “We CAN Feed the Hungry” food drive. All of SAM’s 27 managed self-storage properties will be drop off points for non-perishable donations until Thanksgiving. Each of the properties will be working in conjunction with a local food bank.
“14.6 percent of U.S. households—more than 49 million Americans, including 16.7 million children—struggle to put food on the table,” said Alyssa Quill, SAM vice president. “We want to help fight hunger these holidays in our local communities, and as our food drive slogan says, ‘open up a can of giving.’ Holidays should be times of celebration with loved ones, and no one should have to wonder how they’re going to put food on the table.”
All participating customers will be offered a rent discount for donated items. Many property managers are also donating their time and use of the facility’s moving truck to collect items. “I’m really excited about this effort. We have yard signs, flyers and ‘I fed the hungry’ stickers for those who donate items,” said one property manager in Dillsburg, Pa. “So far the response has been incredible. Not only have our tenants been donating, but other local businesses and residents have been contributing as well.”
